As of Monday, the four drum and bugle corps who have made the second round of the Chase Community Giving Facebook program have posted their “Big Idea”. A requirement of each of the 100 non-profit charities who are in the second round was to create a proposal, with photos and a video, describing who and what they are and what they would do with the $1 million given to the organization which receives the most votes between January 15th and January 22nd. The second through sixth place organizations each receive $100,000.
The four corps who made it into Round 2 (Carolina Crown, The Cavaliers, The Colts, and Phantom Regiment), have posted their proposals on their respective Chase Community Giving Facebook pages. I have provided links to all of the proposals, as well as links to each corps’ website and Facebook fan page. If you do not know about these organizations (hard to believe if you follow me on Twitter and Facebook, considering I bombard you about drum corps whenever possible), please look over each of them. Even if you’re the most die-hard drum corps fan and can whistle every single melody all four of these corps have played since they were started, check out the proposals and watch the videos. They are very well made and have very ambitious goals attached to them. Come Friday, every Facebook member who has added the Chase Community Giving app to their profile receives five votes. When the time comes, I ask that you use four of those votes on these drum corps listed below.
